Naphthol Red often gets compared to other red pigments like Cadmium Red, Quinacridone Red, and Pyrrole Red. Regarding Cadmium Red, Naphthol Red offers a similar vibrant red hue but with cleaner color mixing and no dullish appearance that comes with Cadmiums. Now, let's talk about Quinacridone Red. It tends to have a slightly cooler undertone and higher transparency than the warm and intense Naphthol Red. As for Pyrrole, it leans towards a more recognizable true red, with a more subdued chroma than the lively Naphthol Red.
Naphthol Red (PR170) is a synthetic organic pigment that's hot right now. It offers very good lightfastness, meaning it will resist fading over time. This pigment is all about boldness and intensity.
